I would enjoy the company, I am sure.  What I am not sure of is whether I will be alone (my daughter *might* attend) or what days I will be there.  What days do you plan on going?

Probably drive up the day before (June 13th) and return on Sunday or Monday.

I have a Prius which gets 54mpg on the highway routinely.  My house has a ton of parking so you could leave your vehicle here without a problem.

Looks like the stars are aligning. As of now I will be there Friday and Saturday!

Well then, I will thank you for the offer, but I will have to decline.  Most likely, I will leave Friday after half a day of work and be there until Monday.  However, I will expect to meet you there and buy you an adult beverage of your choice for the books you sent.  :)
